FoodCycle builds communities by combining volunteers, surplus food and spare kitchen spaces to create nutritious meals for people at risk from food poverty and social isolation.
Launched in May 2009, we now have 15 projects cooking across the country. Over 4 million people are affected by food poverty in the UK, yet we throw away millions of tonnes of perfectly edible food. To us at FoodCycle this just doesn't make sense, so our teams of amazing volunteers are doing something about it. Since 2009 we've served over 40,000 nutritious three-course meals, created out of 35,000kg of reclaimed surplus by our network of over 1000 volunteers. But there's much more we can do, and we need your help.
If you can help, please donate using the right-hand sidebar. You can make a one-off donation, fundraise for us by running a marathon or hosting a dinner, or make a regular monthly donation. Thank you for your support!
